"I ASKED GOD..."

I asked God to take away my pain.
 God said, No.
 It is not for Me to take away, but for you to give it
up.
 I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
 God said, No.
 His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.
 I asked God to grant me patience.
 God said, No.
 Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't
granted, it is
 earned.
 I asked God to give me happiness.
 God said, No.
 I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.
 I asked God to spare me pain.
 God said, No.
 Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings
you closer
 to Me.
 I asked God to make my spirit grow.
 God said, No.
 You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make
you
 fruitful.
 I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
 God said, No.
 I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.
 I asked God to help me LOVE others as much as He loves
me.
 God said... Ahhh, finally! you have the idea.
 I asked God to send me friends... He sent you

 If you love God, send this to ten people you care about
 and back to the person who sent it.
